This is one of the difficult questions that we must investigate in order to determine who we should pursue for compensation. The answer to the question of responsibility will vary depending on the circumstances. For example:
- If defective swimming pool equipment caused the injury, we would bring a claim against the company that designed or manufactured the equipment and/or against the company that installed it.
- If a hotel or public swimming pool has inadequate warnings regarding lack of lifeguards, or does not have a fence or lock to keep out children, we would bring a legal claim against the owner of the premises where the swimming pool is located.
- If a child drowns or is otherwise injured due to negligent supervision by a distracted babysitter or teacher, we would bring a legal claim against the responsible individual.
